I have a problem with my mouse cursor. In some games it keeps moving down. It suddenly began doing it. It wasn't a problem when I installed windows 7. It is primarily a problem in the games that come with Windows 7, so I've been ignoring it, but I can't play Fallout New Vegas because the cursor problem occurs in that game as well. I have a Logitech MX 620 mouse. I have tried to pull out the batteries to see if that helped, but it didn't. I tried to unplug the mouse to see if that helped, but it didn't. I tried installing Setpoint, but it didn't change anything. Does anyone know what I can do to get rid of this really annoying problem?

go to control panel and double click mouse. Go to POINTER OPTIONS and un-check ENHANCED POINTER PRECISION. That should help...

I hope this helps!

I have two mice connected to my system because I sometimes switch hands depending on what I'm doing & one of my mice is right-handed only. Every once in a while one of the mice goes a little funky and starts moving the cursor on its own. When this occurs and I'm using the other mouse, it's really hard to figure out what the heck's going on - but a little bump of the other mouse solves the problem.

I tried connecting another mouse instead of my Logitech mouse, but that didn't help. When I disconnected it and connected my old mouse the cursor went all the way to the top left corner of the screen. I had to restart my computer to solve that.
I have tried to scan the computer with ad-aware, Spybot and my anti-virus program Kaspersky and none of them found any malicious software on my computer.

I managed to fix it by removing the mouse and deleting the driver in device manager or whatever it's called in the English version of Windows. I then plugged in another mouse and had Windows install that and then I unplugged it and plugged in my Logitech mouse. Now the problem has gone away.

Strange to think that the driver would do something like that...

Thanks for posting the solution you found!

I tried removing the mouse in device manager. forgot to delete the driver though, and it kept doing it. But i did go into mouse settings and I ENABLED my mouse pointer precision and it went away. no more problem ;-p
